Halfpenny is sometimes used in Ireland as an English language version of Ó hAilpín, more often englished as Halpin.
I believe Cutforth is also likely to be from a place name, perhaps Cudworth, the name of several English villages. Alternatively it might derive from Cusworth,Doncaster,Yorkshire, which was originally something like Cudsworth. There is also a Cufforth House in the Leeds area, but that may take its name from a family.
